Pearl Jam held an epic concert in Baltimore on Sunday after "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" wrapped up its week dedicated to the alternative band Thursday and Pearl Jam performed on the show.

Pearl Jam performed the new single "Sirens" from its new album "Lightning Bolt." Their appearance followed tributes throughout the week by Fleet Foxes and the Avett Brothers.

Pearl Jam's Mike McCready joined the Roots for a version of their hit "Alive" last Wednesday.

The band's lead singer Eddie Vedder told Fallon on Thursday about his history with the band and his favorite songs. He appeared on the show along with actor and Pearl Jam fan Javier Bardem.

After Pearl Jam week, the band performed in Baltimore on Sunday for the first time ever.

"With no opening band, Pearl Jam played 32 songs for nearly three hours," the Baltimore Sun reported. "The band, playing as a six-piece, performed six songs from its new album, 'Lightning Bolt.' Of the new material, 'Sirens' stood out most, blossoming from gentle to anthemic with little prodding."

Some fans wanted to hear the band's old songs that made Pearl Jam popular. 

"The crowd — full of fans that spent the entire night enthusiastically clapping, stomping and pogoing — appreciated the new tracks, but they were really there to see what tricks the band had planned," The Sun reported. "An early treat was 'Lukin,' a 63-second, punk-inspired song from 1996’s 'No Code.' Appropriately, it followed Vedder's acknowledgement that Ian MacKaye was in the building. Later, 'Spin the Black Circle,' a hyper 'Vitalogy' cut, was dedicated to MacKaye’s Dischord record label."

Seattle-based Pearl Jam, along with Nirvana, are among the most popular rockers from the '90s. Pearl Jam's first two albums sold more than 15 million copies.

The band first called itself Mookie Blaylock, in honor of the former NBA basketball player, but later changed its name to Pearl Jam. The band opened for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, and U2 in its early days, and headlined the 1992 Lollapalooza Tour.
